I wish to pvp with shield boosters instead of ASB's. will it ever happen again? Theres more than ASB you know...

good news anyway.



For that they would need to use less capacitor.


THe main reason why ASB are superior is not the raw repair they ahve. Its that the normal shield boosters almost mandate you to bring a Cap injector, therefore another mid slot.

That is not feasible in many ships..

    The only way to PVP with shield boosters currently is with ASBs or Deadspace, so buffing T2/Faction ones will make shield tanking cheaper. Its a good change.

    How much herp could a herp derp derp if a herp derp could herp derp.

    I think you should really balance the deadspace and officer modules on the same run, after these changes T2/faction boosters will be more effective than pith C modules. and officer modules have been underpowered for their level for ages.

    and this is also kick in the nuts for those people who have invested in these modules, this will drop the prices a lot.

    I understand that giving 15% to deadspace/officer reps will make them too OP, but not giving nothing will make then loose the advantage they had in comparation to "normal" ones, is that intencional ?

    why not given them 5% to keep them in line, proportionally speaking, with the "normal" ones?

    Someones about to lose out on deadspace/officer mod sales.

    Good change. Local reps may become more viable, with the nos changes....

    Yea I can see this happening.

    Yaay!!!!

    CCP FOZZIE, If you dont incease ASB`s aswell wont that be considered another nerf to asb`s? it will the second nerf of ASB`s.
    you couldnt atleast give ASB`s a 5% increase... not everyship has bonuses like the new vaga and vargur

    didn't see that coming but i don't complain. Hoped for something like "ship resistance influences remote rep amount" or something similar to close the gap.

    how to fix eve: 1) remove ECM 2) rename dampeners to ECM 3) add new anti-drone ewar for caldari 4) give offgrid boosters ongrid combat value

    A good change; but I am also of the opinion that deadspace and officer modules should be buffed by 5% or 7.5% to keep them in line with the other modules.

    A partial win for armor repping, but a huge problem with it still cap usage, they use a massive amount of cap for a "sustained" repair system.

    If you don't follow the rules, neither will I.

    Nicely Nicely, filling in the huge void in T2 to High Meta reps. Always seemed like a massive boost, maybe not so much anymore.

    The Gist boosters are phenomenally overpowered and have been since forever, they absolutely need this relative nerf.

    Imperial Navy MARs have a rep:cap ratio of 2. A-type MARs have a rep:cap ratio of 2.6. Going from faction to best deadspace is a 30% increase in efficiency.

    Caldari Navy medium shield boosters have a boost:cap ratio of 1.5. With a SBA II fitted they have a boost:cap ratio of 2.04. Gistum A-type boosters have a boost:cap ratio of 4.473. With a pith X-type SBA fitted they have a boost:cap ratio of 6.49, a 218% increase in efficiency over faction.

    So, basically, going from best faction repper to best deadspace repper lets you rep 30% more for the same cap. Going from best faction to best deadspace shield boosters lets you boost 218% more shield for the same amount of cap. Yeah, that's exceptionally fair.

    Cause this could have an interesting effect on combat triage.


    They will affect local capital reps, yes.



    When will local capital hull reps be a thing? I want to hull tank my nidhoggur.

    Please send all tears directly to me. I'm running low.

    De'Veldrin's Corollary (to Malcanis' Law): Any idea that seeks to limit the ability of a large nullsec bloc to do something in the name of allowing more small groups into sov null will inevitably make it that much harder for small groups to enter sov null.

    Faction boosters like Dread Guristas are buffed, Deadspace boosters like Pith are not.



    they should at least get something, maybe 5% otherwise there going to be outta line

    As is being mentioned in places, it's the armour rep cycle time and cap usage that really makes the difference from links. Rolling these aspects into the raw modules would do far more for the viability of ships & fits to manage to run a couple of reps without being alpha'd first or far too vulnerable to neuts for the number of midslots they have.

    They were out of line, with these changes they will be inline.

    Ironically, siege/armor links were what made active tanking a viable tactic.
